I always took the paved path between the railings: Birdcage Walk, it's called,
because of the pleached lime trees arching overhead on their cast-iron frame. In
late summer the rosebay willowherb grew taller than the battered headstones
and monuments. Every so often the graveyard would be strimmed and the stones
would show naked. The tide of green would be stemmed for a few weeks, but it
could never be held back. I once saw a man doing t'ai chi in a clearing, but

Birdcage Walk and the avenues within the railings by its side contain some of the
best trees in the Park. Birdcage is a corruption of Boccage or Avenue ; and
Storey's Gate, at the Westminster end of it, takes its name, as was before stated,
from Edward Storey, who was employed by Charles II. on some of the work in the
Park. Bishop Warburton, in a letter to his follower Hurd, happily hit off some of the
peculiarities of the place. " I would recommend to our good friend Mason a
voyage now ...

promenade known as Birdcage Walk ran along the south side of St. James's Park
. A broad carriageway lined with rows of elm and lime, it was open to commoners
traversing it on foot. Only members of the royal family were allowed to drive down
Birdcage Walk. It wasn't a privilege they exercised often, but the prerogative
remained exclusively theirs, nonetheless. Over the past fifty or more years, the
walk had become notorious as a popular “molly market,” or cruising ground. The
area's ...

The lower flats led straight out onto the little park and Birdcage Walk, so that their
curving fronts really were fronts. The upper flats had no direct access to the Walk,
to which, as part of a planned ensemble, they rightly belonged, so that they were
also excluded from the little park that went with it, though their handsome wrought
-iron balconies gave a much better view of it than that enjoyed by the flats below.
It was an instance of a pretty slipshod conversion that had been carried out ...
